Andrew McCabe, the Deputy FBI Director President Donald Trump has insisted for months must go, has finally decided to call it quits. He announced Monday that he will retire from the bureau. Experts say he may have been pushed out by the Trump administration.

This is a breaking story.




NBC News reports that McCabe who was originally set to retire in March when he would be fully eligible for pension benefits may have been forced to leave early by the Trump administration.

Trump and congressional Republicans have in the past few months increasingly expressed critical views of Deputy Director McCabe. They accused him of political bias, but have failed to show proof, in a bid to stop the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations into Russian meddling into the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections.




Experts believe that the unusually harsh Twitter campaign waged against McCabe by President Trump may have either directly led to this early retirement or have contributed in some way to the retirement.

It is not immediately clear whom the Trump administration might appoint to replace Mr. McCabe but experts say that who is appointed to replace him will go a long way towards answering the question of whether he was forced out.




It was reported last week that Trump asked McCabe who he voted for in the 2016 presidential elections. Trump has repeatedly denied asking that question, although most experts believe Trump may be lying.

Andrew McCabe is a 22-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). He was former Director James Comey’s right-hand man at the bureau and experts say that is the reason Trump can’t stand him staying with the bureau.
